WARWICK, RI — It’s a February first Friday lineup of Warwick Weekend events including Groundhog Day showing at Proclamation Brewing, WCFA’s latest artists show, public skating and educational Black History Month reading.

Warwick Weekend weather will be a sunny experience with temperatures in the balmy mid-to-high 30s, according to the National Weather Service. Here are some events and happenings you may enjoy along the way.

Black History Month reading: February is Black History Month, during which the Warwick Public Library is spotlighting several titles in their collection.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Gamm Theatre through Feb. 17 From its Tony Award-winning debut for best play (1963) to its many revivals on the modern stage, Edward Albee’s masterful 3-act play is an explosively comedic and harrowing masterpiece. On the heels of a university faculty party, middle-aged professor George and his wife, Martha, invite campus newcomers Nick and Honey over for drinks. What starts as harmless patter escalates to a full night of vicious, booze-fueled barbs, as the unwitting young couple is drawn into their hosts’ all-out marital warfare. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? explores the illusions we create in the face of painful truths and life’s uncertainty.

Tickets available through Feb. 17 at Gamm Theatre, 1245 Jefferson Boulevard, Warwick, RI
